Lynn M. Hilton and Nancy Hilton are many things together.
Lynn was a B-24 bomber pilot in the US army during World War II. After the war he served, without purse or script, as an LDS missionary in the New England Mission. He later earned a PhD degree from the University of Chicago in Educational Administration and served as a Professor and Associate Dean of Continuing Education at BYU. In the 1970s Lynn and his first wife accepted a special mission calling to lead the original expedition to the Arab world to find the ancient trail of Lehi and Nephi in the Book of Mormon. Lynn has lived twelve years in Arab countries and speaks Arabic.
I'm Rebecca Cressman and today our guests are Lynn and Nancy Hilton.
Lynn and Nancy, thank you so much for joining me today.
Lynn: Hey Rebecca, it is nice to talk to you.
Lynn: But you know we haven't been married for thirteen years; but eight.
Q: Eight years, so I rounded up.
Lynn: And during that interval we have completed four missions and we are right now in Boston on our fifth mission.
Q: Well talk to me a little bit, Lynn, about that commitment when you and Nancy married eight years ago.
A: Oh that was just a number I decided upon while I was already on a mission when I met Lynn, my first mission. I joined the Church thirteen years ago and wanted to serve the Lord for the rest of my life and so I wanted a man who would do the same thing. And when Lynn proposed to me he read to me Doctrine and Covenants 132:19 and told me that that was the kind of marriage he wanted Eternal. And I said then, "Okay, let's serve the Lord together and will you serve five missions with me?"
Q: And so you basically proposed to him. Lynn is that right then, she proposed the missions and you proposed the marriage?
Now Nancy, you mentioned that you met Lynn when serving a mission.
Q: Well I am interested, Nancy, because, Lynn, I am sure when you met Nancy you heard about her story.
Lynn: Our research was published by the Ensign Magazine after we got home.
A: Oh actually the first time I met Lynn he was giving a Lehi Trail fireside. And so now his DVD shows the entire trail on the television screen and you can listen to his narration and look at the slides from Jerusalem to Bountiful and participate in the trail.
Q: What was that like for you, Lynn, to be walking on... I have never had that personal experience to even walk in Jerusalem, but to feel like you are recreating history from 2,000 years ago what was that like for you Lynn?
Well Lynn and Nancy Hilton, what an example of service and eight years of marriage, five missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and then sharing your research, your theories, and your personal conversion experiences in the books as you mentioned on
Be sure to check your email next Saturday to find out who else like Lynn and Nancy Hilton are making a difference in our world with A Personal Touch.
